Sara's Room - Book Case Complete...

One more step closer to Sara's Big Girl room....

These shelves started life as a cheap ($20) melamine kit in a light pine color we brought 10yrs ago from either Lowes or Kmart, I forget which...

Added little trim ($21) and a little paint ($0 because we used left over paint) and you would never know of their humble mass-production beginning.

How good did the trim turned out once painted and destressed a little??

I love how cute and antiquey (word?) they look now...I also love the green of the shelves with the soft blue of the headboard, I wanted complementary pieces not matchy-matchy.

Actually I tried to give these shelves away last yr and they never got picked up...Turned out to be a blessing and just want I needed to give Sara's new big girl room some display space for her favorite toys.

Kelsie,
I adore the makeover of this bookshelf! The vintage color of green is similar to the color used in the later 60's by my dad when he made cabinets for my MoMa's beauty shop! Thank you for showing us how to enhance what we already have and reuse it in our home decor!Lil Sara is on her way to the world of grown up girl with "a place for everything and eveything in it's place"!
Fondly,
Pat

I was never able to instill that everything in it's place theory with my kids. The room is beautiful.
